The “Design Our Future”_x009d_ event is the culmination of a design competition that utilizes futuristic urban design as a platform to showcase the creative voices of high school students in Detroit, and to promote design as a career choice that is integral to science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM). Participating students of the competition are encouraged to envision an inclusive future Detroit, and design a type of transportation, a living space, or a wearable item for persons living with disabilities in 2050. All finalists’ work will be showcased, juried and awarded at the event. This event, open and free to the public, is presented by DESIGNCONNECT, sponsored by DTE BEACON PARK FOUNDATION, and programmed by DOWNTOWN DETROIT PARTNERSHIP.
Live streaming will be available.
